Plantcestors & Tree Medicine / The Silver Branch of Cormac mac Airt

May 4, 2021

In this episode we recount the Irish tale of King Cormac mac Airt's magical silver branch and discuss the resonance of the holy day of Bealtaine (Beltane) with sacred tree medicines. Kenzie, Rue, and Mica discuss ancient kingship and sovereignty rituals, honesty in governance and restorative justice, the medicinal uses of hawthorn and linden for grief and balancing the nervous system, plant intelligence, and honoring plants as the leaders and teachers of humanity. We tell several stories of our most memorable tree encounters (and make-out sessions). And as always, we get witchy; we get queer.
